MAGELLAN EXPLORER

Magellan Explorer is a brand new, modern expedition vessel purposely built for Antarctic air-cruises.

For each air-cruise, Magellan Explorer has a capacity of 73 passengers in seven different cabin categories, including dedicated cabins for solo travellers. All cabins, except Porthole cabins, feature private balconies to allow for guests to take in the amazing views along the journey. All double cabins except two have two twin beds that can be configured as one king-size bed. All other cabins have two twin beds that can be configured as one queen-size bed. All cabins feature a wardrobe, individually controlled heating system, a sitting area, and a private bathroom with shower.

The ship features a glass-enclosed observation lounge and presentation room with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, a spacious and stylish dining room, a well-stocked bar, a library, meeting room, gym, sauna and a medical clinic. The forward-facing observation deck leads to the bow of the ship, which is accessible to guests to offer proximity to marine wildlife. The ship has a fleet of 10 Zodiac boats that are well suited for disembarking and wildlife watching.
